Venus Flytrap Dionaea Muscipula Volcanic Red Carnivorous Houseplant Seeds
5 venus flytrap seeds. The Venus flytrap is a unique carnivorous plant that is famous for its trapping mechanism. It has two hinged lobes at the end of each leaf that can snap shut when triggered by hair-like projections called trichomes. This type of movement is called thigmonasty, a plant response to touch. The traps are designed to only shut when prey is present, preventing the plant from wasting energy. The Venus flytrap is one of the few plants that exhibits such active trapping movements.

Perennial. Sow anytime. Use a neutral soilless potting
mix such as 1pt peat moss and 1pt perlite.
Ensure the mix is fully watered all the way through
using distilled water. Surface sow seeds. Propagate
with a propagator set or inside a zip lock bag with 2
inches of distilled water in the bottom. Place in fridge
to stratify for 4-6 weeks (to speed up germination
but not a necessary step). After this or instead
of this, place under lights or in a light position,
expect germination in 4-6 weeks from this point. Always
use distilled/rain water when watering these plants.
